Im just starting Atkins but when I put in my menu for the first two days in my diet journal I noticed my carb intake is to high... What exactly should I be cutting back on? Because I thought I was actually doing a good job... Ugh I just want to lose weight😓😓😓😓😓

I think maybe you logged your food wrong. I looked at your diary and you logged a few items that may not be accurate to what you really had. like the Caesar salad. that listing may include croutons. here's how I do my food diary.
if it's a single item like any fruit or veggie, look for the USDA listing instead of the Generic.
if it's something with several ingredients like a salad, log each item individually...lettuce, cheese, dressing, etc
if it's something I'm making a large batch of like a recipe, add that to your cookbook. this will help you figure the individual servings.
if the item you're eating comes with a nutrition facts label (produce doesn't), use that info over anything else.

Also in your settings there's an option to show net carbs. Otherwise it shows the total and it's misleading.

Just checked out your food diary. Salmon cake or patty at 12.93 nc is very high, must have added sugar. Salmon by itself is no to low carb. Also vinaigrette at 8 nc is high. Sugar? Salad dressings need to come in at 2 net carbs or less per serving. Have you gone through the lessons at atkins.com? They are a great help in getting started.
